, george. in fact, romney using words, phrases we haven't heard from him before, saying, "my heart aches," when he hears stories of economic hardship. pushing a compassionate side. tonight, something else. both candidates chasing each other today and you're about to hear a real preview of the debate before they even get to the stage. call it the duel before the debate. the president and mitt romney chasing each other across the same states. in virginia today, the president making it clear what we'll hear from him in these final weeks. more about romney's comments about the 47%. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims, who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> reporter: while romney today making it clear he'll bring it back to the economy, firing back with new numbers just today, growth in this country slower than we thought. >> look at the numbers that just came out and the growth of our economy. 1.3% versus russia at 4%? china at 7% to 8%? we're at 1.3%. this is unacceptable. >> reporter: and both candidat

job, mitt romney. no doubt both of the conversations netanyahu will be pressing his case on iran. specifically what the u.s. is & other allied countries need to do to stop iran from getting a nuclear bomb. so here's what he said before the general assembly. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right he here. before -- before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment mess to make a bomb. >> it reminds us of that old boris and bullwinkle with the bomb and the fuse and all that. it was really quite bizarre way to demonstrate this red line. talk a little bit about what we anticipate, what we expect from this phone call, first of all, between president obama and netanyahu? >> well, as you know, president obama decided not to meet with mr. -- with prime minister netanyahu. so that was considered kind of, i guess, you know, a little cold shoulder, so what he is doing is he is going to have a phone call although they're not saying it directly, you can kind of feel that maybe this is an indication that there was a little blow-back from that, that he

battleground america. president obama and mitt romney today in the crucial state of virginia. both candidates fighting for every vote. let's bring in my political all-stars, charles blow, op ed columnist for the "new york times" and republican pollster, kristen soltis. kristen, let me start with you. your guy's in a hell of a lot of trouble. i'm looking at some polls here, doesn't matter who you believe, suffolk university, fox news, quinnipiac, "new york times," cbs, all of them in virginia against likely voters have obama comfortably ahead. this is a big problem for mitt romney, isn't it? >> i don't think it's quite a big a problem as you have made it out to be. there was a poll suffolk university had out just tonight that had obama up by two. so it is true you've got obama up in swing states like virginia by small margins. but there's become this narrative that's really developed over the last week that the race is starting to get away from governor romney that i think is not really founded in necessarily good data. you know, out of five polls that will come out in the week, the
